I’m fond of teaching even before that’s why I had no qualms in doing it. I never knew I’ll stumble upon it sooner when I met Kuya Harvard, founder of U! Happy Events. He invited me last year to join an art workshop. I agreed because I have been actively teaching kids in our kids ministry in Victory Fort so I thought it is an opportunity for me to learn more about kids.

My most memorable experience in U! Happy Events was during a kite flying in Marikina with kids of Shepherd of the Hills. It was memorable because the kid I was partnered with had the same name as mine. I had a fantastic experience creating and flying a kite with her.

What I like about Volunteerism is that it’s not just about assisting but it enables you to have the power to impart knowledge to them. You are given an opportunity for a short moment to make a difference. Few people see the opportunity of mentoring on kids, who are the future of our community. Also, Volunteerism enables you to learn from kids. It teaches you how to be patient, to impart in a basic aspect, to laugh like a you mean it, and to appreciate God’s wonder in smaller scales. God said that we should train a child in the way he should go, so that when he is old he will not turn away from it ( Proverbs 22:6).

Glenn Costales

 

It was the summer of 2008. I was invited to take part in this outreach event that supposedly had 500 children, not to mention hundreds of other volunteers. I decided to go for the heck of it and plus, I thought it would be awesome to do an outreach just this one time. Fast forward […]

Malou Galian

 

Malou is our current Secretary. Kuya Harvard and her got connected via Friendster. That was when Friendster was the Facebook. I’ve been to a lot of charity events since I was 17. These experiences got me more involved in the need of children. Every hospital, orphanage, and community-based organizations that I took part of made […]
